    Date: Sat. Feb. 13, 2016
    Venue: Maha ESL Community – Egypt
    A School – China
    Duration: about 3 hours
    Teachers: Egypt: 4 teachers, 2 teaching Adults and 2 teaching Prep. students
    China: 2 from Romania, 1 from UK and 1 from China
    Procedures:
    Each group of teachers chose a stimulus. The Egyptian group chose “computer”, while the Chinese group chose “a bell”. Each group explained their choice. It was interesting to know that the Chinese teachers chose the bell for it cultural background as well as its multi uses. This went on for about 10 minutes.
    Each side brainstormed ideas for about 15 minutes, figure (1) and (2) and then we exchanged ideas, discussions and posed questions for about 20 minutes.

    Preparation went on for 45 minutes. For the next hour, the two groups explained their Lesson Plans. All teachers had the chance to share in the explanation and answer mutual questions. The teachers even suggested more ideas to each other to develop the Lesson Plans proposed.

    We were lucky enough to have the least problems with Skype that day. If you would like to use Google Hangout that would be great because it helps you to record the whole session easily.

    At the end of the day the teachers completed ‘Evaluation Forms’ giving their opinion of the day. We enjoyed the day a lot especially the exchange of ideas.
